How to make vegan lip balm

Many people do not realise just how simple it is to make your own lip balm.  Sadly, most conventional lip balms are little tubes chock full of petrolchemicals, synthetic frgarances and preservatives. The marketing spiel tells you that it locks in moisture and nourishes.  Well we can say for sure that plant oils are much more nourishing than petrol!  All you have to do is melt the candelilla wax, shea butter and coconut oil together in a glass jug over a simmering saucepan of water (just you melt chocolate). Take off the heat and mix in a few drops of your favourite delish essential oil like Peppermint or Orange or Lavender.  Then pour into our Lip balm glass jars and let cool.

Great vegan alternative to Bees Wax, good for natural deodorants.

I bought this to make my own natural deodorant, it was the perfect amount for 6 small tubs when combined with other ingredients such as Shea Butter and arrowroot and other things I have also purchased from Biome. Once I have almost run out of my homemade stock I will definitely be purchasing this candelilla wax from Biome again.
